Learn how to make a quick batch of cannabutter using distillate

When it came to using anything but flower, I will admit I was a little apprehensive. I’m not worried about making mistakes, but when making a mistake can easily cost over a $100 in medicine, I think most would be a little nervous. That’s why up until 2021, we at CannaCook have avoided using concentrates and distillates. But after a year of successfully cooking with flower, we decided in 2021 to give it a shot.

What is distillate?

A runny, translucent oil devoid of the waxes or undesirable compounds from the original plant. Distillate is desirable due to its potency and versatility. It can be used to dab, vaporize, and mix in as an ingredient in edibles, topicals, and other products. Distillate concentrates are achieved through an extensive refinement process that separates compounds from cannabis plant matter.

I will say that it is much easier than we anticipated! In fact, if I had to learn the whole process over again, I would have started with distillates and concentrates. They are just so easy to work with! So lets explore this distillate butter recipe, shall we?

    Decarboxilate your Cannabis to create full-spectrum ACTIVE THC (or if using HEMP CBD): place cannabis (hemp or marijuana) in a covered dish in the oven @ 240 degrees for 35 minutes. Let sit after removing from oven infuse any vapor back into the plant. Now place in a fat product (butter, coconut oil, grape seed oil etc.) and simmering BELOW 240 for 6 hrs. to release in the fat you used. I use a crockpot on low or a double boiler. The “carrier fat/oil ” is now available for your favorite recipe.
